Subject: Hi

I work as a janitor at The New York Times. On Friday night around 2am I was harassed by employees of The Times who were getting drunk in one of the offices of the floors I clean. Besides calling me creepy and implying that I would harm them somehow, they also threw a garbage can full of Chinese food all over the ladies bathroom right after I cleaned it.

I don’t know if you guys could use a story like that but I figured you’d find that interesting.

Is the story true? On the one hand, it’s Gawker. On the other, it’s the New York Times, whose journalists and editors act as if they’re still in junior high and refer to entire swatches of America as “The dance of the low-sloping foreheads.” Survey says…well, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised if it’s true, let’s put it that way.
